TX-Sen: MJ Hegar (D) Launches Huge Virtual Volunteer Program
Received this e-mail from MJ Hegar’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
We need to make sure every Texas voter knows why MJ is the best candidate to beat Sen. Cornyn before the July 14 runoff!
With in-person events suspended, online organizing is one of the most important tools in our arsenal to reach out to people across the state. We need all hands on deck for our virtual volunteer program — sign up today to get started!
If you are unable to volunteer, you can support our mobilization efforts by donating toward our digital program and helping MJ engage voters across Texas. We’re going to need all hands on deck to get MJ’s message out there!
— Team MJ
Also, Hegar’s campaign is raising money for a good cause:
One of my first memories was my mother being thrown through a plate glass door. For some families out there, being stuck inside as a result of COVID-19 means being stuck inside with a domestic abuser.
COVID-19 has put an unprecedented strain on our shelters, which need our help in the best of times. Reports of domestic abuse have spiked, and victims are facing a shortage of resources. They need our help.
Can I count on you to step up if you can and help your neighbors get the life-saving resources they need in this crisis?
If you or someone you know is struggling with domestic violence, you can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline by calling 1-800-799-7233 or by texting “LOVEIS” to 22522.
